the debate: I want to get my greens in (actually, I want to go all fruit, but that doesn't seem to work as well for me as I want it to, so I think I need to go greens for awhile), and am debating the best way to do so. I enjoy both the smoothie and the juice, but I'm uncertain about where it best fits in to my day in terms of food combining, and which is more highly preferable.
I feel like I need to get these liquified greens in as early as possible - water, green beverage, then start on my breakfast. but my breakfast is watermelon for at least 2 more months! so if I have green juice before watermelon, that seems to be an ok combination in my mind, but a green smoothie seems like it would take longer and would combine less well. both are essentially the same thing: juice of 2 oranges, 5-6 stalks of celery, 2-3 large handfuls of spinach, but for the smoothie I add in 2 bananas and don't strain out the pulp. I add a lot of water to both.
opinions? thoughts? anyone had any experiences with juice working better than smoothies or vice-versa? and how do you order your day - where does your green beverage fit in?
